How to Fix Competition and Player Names in FM14


As usual, we don’t have some national team players real names, as well as some competitions, clubs etc... So here is a quick tutorial on how to fix this in Football Manager 2014.

Fake competition and player names that appear in FM14 is due to legal rights. Sports Interactive are doing their best to secure as many license possible for each FM edition, but some FA’s simply don’t provide them with the legal rights.

And this is where we get in. In just few easy steps, you’ll have all the real competition and player names. Follow the steps provided below, start a new game and see the difference.


Delete files in all folder 

First thing you’ll need to do is to delete files from all folder. Don’t worry, this will not make your game crash or anything. But it will give you a possibility of playing with some hidden national teams, such as; Germany, China, Shout Korea and Japan.

If you’re a Windows user, go to the following path:

Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2014 \ data \ db \ 14xx \ lnc \ all

Or if you’re on Mac;

[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2014 > data > db > 14xx > lnc > all

Once you’re in all folder you should delete everything in it:

  • fake.lnc
  • lic_dan_swe_fra.lnc
  • nleague.lnc
  • korean name change.lnc

These  must be deleted before we continue to next step, and of course, before you create a new game.


Download and apply

Now you’ll need to download real competition and player names file:

Size: 417 KB | Hosted since: 18/10/2013

Once downloaded, simply copy/move the file to the following destination:

For Windows users:

Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2014 \ data \ db \ 14xx \ lnc \ all

For Mac users:

[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2014 > data > db > 14xx > lnc > all

Once you’ve done everything accordingly, you’ll be happy to find out that now all the competition and player names are real. Also, to apply this fix, you’ll need to start a new game on FM14.
